Higher Learning Commission puts New Mexico Highlands University on probation - Robert Nott, New Mexican

Highlands has about 3,500 students at its main campus in Las Vegas, N.M. It also operates satellite centers around the state, including in Santa Fe. Its annual operating budget is $65 million. The school gave slightly more detailed information about its probation on a webpage than the commission provided publicly. The university says the commission’s key areas of concern include “… ensuring funding and student services … stabilizing Highland’s financial reserves, strategic budgeting and providing training to the Board of Regents.” Sean Weaver, a spokesman for Highlands, said Thursday that some of the concerns include the size of the university’s reserves — about $6 million — a fuzzy mission statement and operational budgeting challenges.
